Program Information

Who this program is for?

This program is for the yoga lover, yoga teacher aspirant or those that are just looking to better themselves as a whole. Whatever your interest, be sure that this program is designed for everyone; young, old, middle-aged, disabled, able, black, white, latinx, male, female, transgender, tall, short, overweight, underweight, healthy or just not sure where you fit in. We have designed this program so that all students will have an opportunity to learn more about themselves as a whole and support their journey to better health. We limit our class sizes so that all students will have an opportunity to interact individually with an instructor as needed.


What is a Hybrid Program?

Hybrid means that this program will take place in person as well as online. There will be 160 hours of in-person study (see schedule for meeting dates), and 40 hours will be scheduled live online through Webex. If students cannot meet during the scheduled live online content, they can view the recordings with a follow-up quiz.


What's the Programs Focus?

This program focuses on Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and Ayurveda. Whole weekends will be dedicated and immersed into each topic. The history and practical elements of Hatha yoga will be taught from a traditional perspective with emphasis on alignment of postures and theoretical elements behind the practice as a whole. Since Yin Yoga is a more modern modification of yoga, we will delve into the practical and theoretical elements as well as why it is such a helpful practice for western society. Anatomy, philosophy and history are very important elements to this program. These topics will primarily be taught in the online section of the program while the practical elements of the anatomy classes will take place during in-person sessions. Sequencing, how to teach a class and create a safe and comfortable environment for your students will also be covered to help support the students ability to safely and effectively teach a yoga class after they graduate. Upon successful completion of the full 200 hours of this program, and after registering with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT 200, students will be able to safely and effectively teach a yoga class anywhere in the world that they choose.

Students are encouraged to camp with their own tent on the grounds of the facility. This will help to ensure that students are on time and have ample time to rest before and after classes. Camping will also help immerse students into the beautiful nature around them. There is plenty of space and green grass to accommodate each student. Indoor and outdoor bathrooms are available on site for students to use. There is no fire pit available, however, some kitchen amenities will be available. 



Breakfast, lunch and a light dinner will be served each day of scheduled class for all participants in the program. A strict vegetarian diet will be served and recommended for all students to help immerse them into the principles of a yogic lifestyle. Student dietary and allergy concerns should be addressed with the lead instructor before the program begins so that proper preparation can be made for them.
